STAFF and students of Labasa School for Special Education were thankful to the management of the Nagigi Naag Mandir for their generous contribution.

LSSE headteacher Mukesh Chand said the management had given a sewing machine, sewing fabrics and other sewing materials worth $500 for the clothing and textile department.

Mr Chand said they had a healthy number of students in the textile and clothing class who were aspiring to become tailors and that such gifts would greatly assist students in their learning exercises.

Eighteen-year-old Navneet Prasad, a student of Labasa School for Special Education, was among the textile and clothing students who welcomed the new sewing machine.

"We will benefit a lot as students and I cannot wait to try the machine out," he said.

"In the past we used to share the sewing machines during classes and this usually took most of our time but with the inclusion of this new sewing machine, this will assist in improving our work.

"We are thankful to the management of the Naag Mandir for their kind act in thinking of us students I believe that this contribution will enable people like me to be successful in life especially as I am aspiring to be a tailor."

Meanwhile, Nagigi Naag Mandir manager, Dhirend Chand said they made the donation because the students needed it for their clothing and textile class.

"The donation will give the students a chance to better their sewing skills and their families will benefit through a brighter future," he said.
